ENB - Region 5 Notices 10/16/2013

Negative Declaration

Washington County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Modification of T & L Sand and Gravel Mind Land Use Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The applicant has proposed to modify their previously approved Mined Land Use Plan to include a portable wash plant with associated settling basin and 15 ± acre pond at final reclamation. The proposed wash plant will be installed within the existing Life of Mine. An existing settling basin will be enlarged to serve as a source of water for the closed loop wash plant, with return flow water being discharged to the basin for reuse. The expanded settling basin will be incorporated into the larger, 15 ± acre pond upon final reclamation. The proposed pond will be constructed by mining material approximately 15 feet below the water table. All process water from the wash plant and stormwater generated on-site will be retained on-site with no off-site discharge proposed. The project is located on Clarks Mill Road, Greenwich, NY.
